Senior Kristy Zamora (Oshawa, Ontario) and Freshman Jessica Link (Clifton Park, NY) assisted on the goal. Sophomore Krissy McManus (Dedham, MA) completed Brown's scoring of the day, collecting the puck sent up by junior Cassie Turner (Campbellford, Ontario), and netting her 11th goal of the season at the 18:00 minute mark of the 2nd. Turner and Senior Meredith Ostrander (Prescott, Ontario) were credited with the assists on the power play goal.

Pamela Van Reesema got the Crimson on the board, netting her 6th goal of the season on a power play chance at 9:20 of the final period. Jamie Hagerman and Tracy Catlin assisted on the tally.

In net, sophomore Katie Germain (Sarnia, Ontario) stopped 21 shots on the afternoon. Her season record now stands at 10-4-0, 7-1-0.
